You know, I was a bit humbled by this tweet. It had crossed my mind many times as to why Blair had seen virtually no playing time throughout the playoffs, and I simply assumed he was hurt without looking further into it. The Spurs have been fantastic without him, especially since Matt Bonner, Boris Diaw, and Tiago Splitter have played so well his relative positions. Clearly, the reasons for Blair’s absence are deep, but I would never question Coach Popovich. I’m sure his reasons are justified, but it is certainly a curious case.
